Banging Drums and Banging Beats, Rumpus Joins Midnight Roster

Posted on

A badass drummer with a punk-rock upbringing, Rumpus infuses an alternative edge into his own unique brand of high vibe, bass heavy, funky tech-house. Powered by live drums, this Canadian DJ keeps the dance floor rocking with his one-of-a-kind productions that feature deep, bouncy basslines and catchy vocals matched with the kick and snare.

Growing up on punk music, Rumpus spent 6 years touring in a punk rock band. The season inspired much of the energy he brings to his live shows today, and after the group split the transformation from Punk Rock to Electronic music took shape.  

“I loved punk but I also had a keen interest in electronic music on the side. When the band broke up I turned to a solo career and moved all my efforts into creating electronic music. I’ve been doing that now for about 8 years and loving it more than ever!” - Rumpus, (Audeze Interview)

When DJing live, Rumpus' symbiotic combination of mixing and live drumming leaves audiences guessing what musical path they will journey down next. His sound is fresh, versatile, and prominent. You can’t help but move to the high energy fusion he brings to create an original, stimulating and action-packed show. 

His releases include music on Insomniac Records, Club Sweat, Westwood Recordings, Vibrancy & Mixfeed, as well as recent collaborations with Volac, Smalltown DJs, Dread MC, Neon Steve & Kid Enigma. He's gained play and support on his tracks from artists including Tiësto, Marten Horger, Marshmello, Oliver Heldens & Nicky Romero to name a few. 

Recently, Rumpus was named one of "12 Emerging Acts to hear this September" by DJ Mag, received the award for Sask Music 2020 Electronic Artist Of The Year, and also a nomination for the 2020 Western Canadian Music Awards ‘Dance Artist of the Year', proving that the continued acceleration for this eclectic producer, drummer and DJ is just getting started!
